I worked at Sterling Jewelers full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Jewelry discount was great. Good health benefits. Very PC and HR friendly work environment if your in to that kind of thing. Great entry level position for young people. Good experience with credit and lending policy if you are looking to make a career in business I guess.

Cons

Must stay in current position for a year before being promoted. I started as seasonal and then went to full-time. No challenge in this position. Barely over minimum wage. 10.50/hr. Then you can shoot for an asst supervisor position after a year and make around 13/hr. You can do much better if you have a degree. RETAIL HOURS.

Advice to Management

Allow more autonomy. Find ways to challenge young bright minds. Once people get throughthe seasonal work train them in lending policy so that the micro of the job fits into the macro. Credit can be exciting when you understand how each transaction fits into policy and departmental and company goals.

    Pros

    Fun, challenging, money to be made, rewarding, promotions, raises.

    Cons

    You gotta roll with the punches, I did. You have too. You either sink or swim. If you are willing to put take one for the team by having others you take 1/2 of your sale when your customer returns. That then would make the associate a cashier if the customer returned with item in mind and told them you helped them. Boom 1/2 your sale in their name because they took the time to ring it up. You can't let that bother you. Ant nobody got time for that. Lol

    I have been working at Sterling Jewelers full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    As one of the largest jewelry companies in the world, Sterling Jewelers offers a great benefits package. It is continuing to grow, with quality product, warranties, and service.

    Cons

    The commission structure within Sterling limits good sales people from achieving commission, because it is based on a store achieving goal. There is no incentive for individual top performers to continue to perform when they know they will not be rewarded for their efforts.

    Advice to Management

    When a store achieves goal, at incremental levels, those achieving it should be awarded. Those that have surpassed store level (top performers) should be given bonus incentives. 1/2%. This would encourage top performers to continue to excel in low performing months, and prompt low performers to see where they could be at!
